Rwanda Lake Kivu
This Fair Trade Organic coffee is grown near Rwanda's Lake Kivu, situated on the slopes of steep volcanic mountains. COOPAC, the co-op that produces these beans, maintains a focus on environmental and social sustainability; waste products are used as fertilizer rather than being dumped into the lake, shade trees are planted to prevent soil erosion, and they help build local infrastructure such as schools, clinics, and roads and bridges. Processed at the Kigeyo Washing Station, this coffee is balanced and sweet with prominent notes of brown sugar, molasses, caramel, and green grape that make for a delicious cup. A current favorite at Beanstock!
